Over the past six years, Gabrielle has taught in a variety of special education classroom settings with various age groups and ability levels. She currently teaches in a classroom that serves students with autism in Kindergarten through 2nd grade. She has a passion for providing high quality instruction, as well as a safe and nurturing learning environment that fosters independence and growth for children with special needs. The desire to share her passion led her to develop a website, Teaching Special Thinkers. Gabrielle wants to engage each and every learner in her classroom. She creates engaging and appropriately leveled resources for her own classroom and shares them with other teachers of special thinkers on TpT. She loves the challenge of creating classroom resources that can meet the needs of different learning styles and ability levels, and save teachers time!
